In Numbers: India’s Badminton stars at Youth Olympic Games

Lakshya Sen repeated the performance of his senior counterpart HS Prannoy with a Silver at the ongoing Youth Olympics in Buenos Aires but the road was anything but easy. The former World No 1 in the Junior events had a thrilling semifinal which included a 70-shot rally. If one remembers one of the most epic rallies of recent times also involving an Indian, one would agree that the potential and stamina of Lakshya Sen makes him a force to watch out for.

He even saved 4 Match Points in the final match before going down with a fight to win the Silver medal and add on to a collective wonderful performance by Indians at the Youth Olympics.

This infographic shows the major achievements of the two Indian shuttlers who had represented India in Buenos Aires. Lakshya Sen can now proudly add a Youth Olympic Silver to this list.
